The reign of The Hunger Games as the top winner at the weekend box office in North America is officially over. After four weeks as the number one movie in America and Canada, The Hunger Games finally slipped to third place in box office ticket sales last weekend.
The new date-night movie, Think Like a Man, won the weekend box office crown, earning $33 million last weekend. Think Like a Man is based on Steve Harvey’s dating advice bestseller and features Michael Ealy, Taraji P. Henson, and Gabrielle Union.
Taking second place in a tight race was yet another date-night movie, The Lucky One, starring rising actor, Zac Efron. The Lucky One, an adaptation of a popular Nicholas Sparks romance novel, earned $22.8 million, taking runner-up honors in the weekend box office race.
The Hunger Games still earned an impressive $14.5 million last weekend in its third place position.
Thanks to the strong showing over its debut weekend, the producers of Think Like a Man hope their movie will retain its crown for a few more weeks, as well.
